Todays technology provides ample opportunity for domestic users to record conversations on the fly in real time.

Hence this facilitates the importance of experts to analyse material for its authentication and produce certified documentation and reports on their findings to verify continuity or discontinuity of audio recordings.
Audio forensic evidence analysis reports are presented to clients in order to assist in areas which require a recording to be proven legitimate.
The authentication of recordings are an integral part of Audio Forensic Services to present recordings as a valid piece of evidence.
